Yesterday was "National Pancake Day"

This is a classic example of how something so ordinary can trigger memories of my son. Davy LOVED pancakes. Growing up, he was always asking me to make them for him. One day I decided he was old enough to make his own pancakes. I got out a cookbook and showed him how to make pancakes without a mix.

That was all it took. He was off and running, making pancakes for himself, and his sisters and I, at the asking. Thing 2 won't eat anyone else's pancakes. I can't think of pancakes without thinking of Davy ... and wishing he were here to make me a stack.

Davy was actually a pretty good cook. He could take a handful of simple ingredients and come up with some very flavorful dishes. His homemade Sloppy Joe's were better than Manwich. Davy was very intelligent and excelled at anything he put his mind to. How sad that someone cut his life short ... and all of his potential, and then drove away without a word, leaving his body on that dark stretch of highway. I will never understand how someone could do that and live with themselves.

The only consolations I have are that he was a born-again Christian, so I know I will see him again one day ... and that the autopsy report convinced me that he did indeed die immediately. I don't have to wonder if he suffered or if he could have survived had help been summoned sooner.

I am still hoping that the conscious of whoever did this will get the better of them and they'll come forward. Until then, all I can do is to keep urging people to keep their eyes open for a 2000-2002 Silver Honda Accord with front end damage ... and pray the damaged hasn't been repaired.

Even if you don't live in the Evansville area, please keep an eye out for this car. It was traveling South on I-69. It could have been coming from and going to anywhere. The Sheriff's office will follow up any ANY lead.

The Sheriff’s Office has identified the make and model of the suspect vehicle from the fatal hit and run crash that killed 23-year old David “Davy” Egan, father of two, on Friday, June 22, 2018 on I-69 near south Green River Road.
SUSPECT VEHICLE: Silver 1998-2002 Honda Accord sedan. 2-door or 4-door body style. The vehicle will have damage to the front end.

If you know of a vehicle matching this description, please contact the Sheriff's Office TIP line at 812-421-6297 or leave a web tip here.
